Very cheap and very good.
« on: March 17, 2023, 08:54 »
I have just now got a couple of rows of carrot seed in using one of those seeder dispenser things with a long plastic spout. When it arrived I opened it up and saw that it had enormous holes taken that I had carrot seed in mind. But after thinking about it, I realized that the smallest hole could be closed down to nothing if required. So with this hole only partially open and tapping the side of the planter, it is easily possible to place seed one by one as needed, sometimes giving a little help along with a small screwdriver. It recent months I have seen posts about the various and sometimes expensive aids, so just wanted to put my opinion of these particular ones out there for anyone interested.

A pointer to an example of that of which you speak?

I got one as a freebie a few years ago and have never used it but, after reading your post, will give it a go with some carrot seeds.
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well.

Yes give it a go Goosegirl. I used it again on Sunday, and as before it worked a treat. On a breezy day it easily dropped carrot seed more or less one by one...........incredible gardening aid when you think about it.
